I do not agree. Over the years I have hired a lot of employees. I paid them what they were worth.......period. I've had employees doing the same job as the person beside them but paid them twice what the other employee was getting. These people were paid twice because they were providing me with exemplary work. They provided an excellent example to other employees. The highly paid employees NEVER told anyone about how much they were making. Smart employers know how to treat their best employees. THAT's how people get rich in business.
